Call Me Ishmael

Take the first sentence from your favorite book and make it
the first sentence of your post.


 

…and then I walked and walked in the rain that turned half into snow and I was drenched and frozen; and walked upon a park that seemed like the very pasture of Hell where there were couples whispering in the shadows, all in some plot to warm the world tonight, and I went into a public place and saw annunciations drawn and written on the walls. And as if in a dream, I sat, dazed and bewildered, and listened to the chatter of patrons, whispers of sweet-nothings, ladies of the night offering comfort and warmth upstairs; and then she sat down next to me, a bit coy, with eyes shimmering like the river in moonlight. I was at once bewitched and frightened.
